Market research firm IDC has updated its object-based storage market review and it reveals that IBM has leapt to the top position after it acquired Cleversafe.

Scality is second on the chart, while Dell/EMC is in the third position, pushing most other players down the rankings.

The market analysts at IDC see “a standardization and integration of the Amazon S3 and OpenStack Swift API, an emphasis on computing paradigms such as containers, native support for file interfaces, and a focus on vertical/use case–centric solution offerings.”

Many offerings have a scale-out file system superimposed on an underlying object storage system. Cloud-based object storage services were not included in the report, however.

The report writers think “object-based storage capacity is expected to grow at a combined annual growth rate of about 30.7 percent from 2016 to 2020, reaching a bit over 293.4 exabytes in 2020.

Revenue-wise, they see a $19.8 billion object storage market in about three years from now.

Compared to the previous report, “a very fragmented OBS market has now somewhat consolidated.” IDC sees all-flash object storage systems being developed for “Big Data/analytics, rich media, and technical computing.”
